In addition, the chapter addresses procedural requirements such as a stay of proceedings pending disposition of the writ, and the petition for writ of review. It further covers ex parte petitions for a writ of review, service of the petition, and the initial opposition to the petition. Next, the chapter focuses on the appellate court's ability to summarily deny the petition or to grant the petition and issue the writ. The discussion also covers the duty of the clerk of court to return the writ with the required transcript when the writ of review is directed, and the responding or real party in interest's ability to make a return by demurrer, verified answer, or both. It addresses the scope of review, including the existence of jurisdictional facts, contempt, and the petitioner's burden of proof. The chapter also considers judgments on the writ and the finality of the writ or order issued by the reviewing court. The chapter's discussion concludes with coverage of costs and the subsequent review of writ proceedings.
